Good job! That guide indeed helped me a lot to give my Drift HD a good cleaning. Was a bit tough to remove the PCB, but after some fiddling it worked. Should be mentioned that you can remove the microphone from the surrounding rubber gasket so you can wash the gasket with ordinary soap. You can also separate the two PCBs (they are just stacked ontop of earch other using press-fit connectors)for easier access, e. g. if you want to clean and re-grease the collar of the lens unit. Also keep an eye on the aluminum cooler star. It has some heat conduction compond on it that you want to spread evenly. Don't wash it off entirely!
